With the development of Mono A flatware in 1959, the foundation for the flatware program and the Mono Design DNA was laid. In addition to Peter Raacke's classics (A, E, T, Oval, Petit), Mono Zeug (the Neanderthal flatware by Michael Schneider, 1995) and the Mono Ring re-edition (collaboration between Peter Raacke and Mark Braun, 2018) belong to the Mono flatware portfolio. All Mono flatware are mostly made by hand in the manufactory in Mettmann. Some 30 steps are used until the final flatware product is finished. The product is under constant evaluation, and only then and when the final touch is made, and perfection is reached, is the product released from the manufactory. We also have the possibility to engrave names, single letters, monograms, logos or emblems and do custom projects in Sterling silver, silver and gold plated.

In 1983 Mono revolutionized the design of teapots and the principle of tea preparation with Tassilo von Grolman's design. Since then, the icon has been awarded as often as it has been copied. A perfect symbiosis of function and aesthetics. The tea leaves have plenty of room to unfold their full aroma in the large, tasteless stainless steel sieve. Together with von Grolman, the Mono tea portfolio has been steadily expanded over the years. The Mono Filio teapots (1989) make the tea float. The glass body of Mono Ellipse (2010) was a technical world first (top round, bottom elliptical). A selection of cups, teapots and other accessories complete the Mono tea enjoyment. The teapots are made of heat-resistant borosilicate glass, all parts are dishwasher safe and Made in Germany.

Mono serving trays present themselves - in a design language in which aesthetics and function complement each other perfectly. Any unnecessary decoration is purposely avoided. The result is simple elegance and timeless appeal. Mono Multitablett is a smart solution combining a base tray with several top tray alternatives for a different kind of serving experience. The anti-slip PVC insert, usable on both sides, one side white, one side black, could also include your logo or come in your corporate color.

Mono Concave (2004) is a convincingly different oil lamp. A flame floats above a bowl of matt brushed stainless steel. It is reflected in the concave shape and becomes an attractive play of light. Inside Mono Concave hides a hollow space filled with lamp oil, which feeds the flame for a long time.
